I am now a 72 year old, obese, wife, mother, and grandmother, sister & aunt from Pennsylvania. I have been eating smarter. Had lost a significant amount of weight. Then gained about 80 lbs. back, from the end of 2016 to 2018. Slowly turned it around again in 2019. Now, in 2021, I am committing to get back to healthier eating, moving more, and living healthier! I need motivation to exercise, make myself go out. I am striving to sleep 5 hours most nights, eat cleaner, smarter, and dump the negative mental messages. I need to avoid junk..both in my food choices and life! Avoiding Stress and anxiety is a battle. But, I was made for this Covid Quarantine ! An excuse to Not Have To Go Out! Not Good For Me. But, I CAN ~ I WILL ~ and I WON'T QUIT!

Member Since: 5/2/2011

My Goals:
To eat smarter.
Break the dessert habit.
be able to walk easier, and for a longer distance.
To be comfortable exercising.
Or, comfortable going OUT .
And every day move more, smile, and learn something, be able to count at least one blessing to be thankful for, and to sleep at least 5 hrs. a night.



My Program:
Think Eat..no more mindless eating!
But DO NOT Think about what people say, think, and do when they look at me.
Move some everyday!
Stay Motivated!
Keep Blood Glucose low and level.
Lights out by 11 p.m., shut off the thought train, and SLEEP!

    I certainly agree with you that this is not really the time to enlist, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it since he's 18 (19 on the 10th) and he's going to do what he's going to do. **SIGH** He has had a LONG history of really bad choices, that's for sure. But absolutely certainly he needs to do SOMETHING to get his life back on track.

    I know He is looking out for John and that is my comfort.

    Thanks for reading my blog!

    Hi Theresa, just stopping by to say hi. I have been missing you. How are you doing? Has the weather cooled down any for you? We are finally having summer with it making it very close to 80 today, We might even hit it. Well, I just wanted you to know I was thinking of you.
